March 23, 2020

We are so very proud to be able to share the fantastic news that the abridged and beautifully illustrated version of Prisoners of Geography: Our World Explained in 12 Simple Maps by Tim Marshall has been shortlisted in the Children’s Non-fiction and Illustrated Book of the Year category of the British Book Awards 2020 (affectionately known as the Nibbies)!

The judges say; “Visually appealing and informative, this illustrated version of Tim Marshall’s Prisoners of Geography brings the same topics to a younger audience. Superbly illustrated by Grace Easton and Jessica Smith, it breaks down many complex geopolitical ideas.”

Run by The Bookseller, The British Book Awards are regarded as ‘the BAFTAs of the book trade’ so it’s a great honour to have made the shortlist – well done, our ever brilliant Tim Marshall and the wonderful illustrators Grace Easton and Jessica Smith.
